^ I never liked locked-room mysteries. Too limited. Literary Sudoku

Currently reading the 2nd installment of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series.
I randomly picked one book up in the summer holidays, finished it, liked it, and started reading the series from the beginning.
Complex & twisted plots that warrant the many hundred pages each story takes to develop & conclude.
I will not embarrass myself by trying to put the proper label on it, but the writer and his main character seem to honor the forefathers of hard-boiled L.A. crime literature.
And you gotta love that the hero's full name really is "Hieronymous Bosch", because his mother thought his paintings aptly portrayed life in L.A.!

I've just finished Tim Birkhead's Bird sense: what it's like to be a bird. It covers all the senses, including the mysterious magnetic sense, and there's a chapter on emotions too.
